Yesterday, Colton came running off the school bus with exciting news...
HE LOST HIS FIRST TOOTH!
It's been a long time coming and we actually just got back from the dentist a couple weeks ago where they thought they might eventually have to extract all 4 bottom front teeth because his adult teeth are already growing. The dentist said his adult teeth were big for his little mouth and his baby teeth were stubborn.
I'm so happy he was able to loose one on his own. He was so proud. For as long as I can remember he's been checking his teeth to feel for loose teeth.
He said when he bit into an apple slice at lunch the tooth (which was really bothering him that morning when we brushed) fell out into his tub of peanut butter. He came home with it wrapped in a napkin in his pocket.
He really wasn't sure what to think about the Tooth Fairy. He was a little nervous to leave the pillow by his bed knowing she would come into his room when he was sleeping. In fact, the night she came, he came into our room and slept with us. He came in after she visited but I think he was a little anxious about it all. In the night he quickly told me something had been left on the ground and his tooth was missing. The next morning, he was excited to go back in his room and see everything.
